BS EN ISO 9934-1:2016

Non-destructive testing. Magnetic particle testing. General principles

Status : Current   Published : December 2016



What is this standard about?

It supplies general principles to harmonize and standardize pre-existing national and professional standards, guidelines and procedures in the field of magnetic particle testing.

Who is this standard for?

The standard will be used in many industries including: construction, structural steel, automotive, petrochemical, power generation, shipbuilding, rail and aerospace.

It is relevant to:

  • Service companies providing NDT services
  • Companies practising NDT in their own environment for production, quality control etc.
  • In service inspection to provide plant/asset condition monitoring support
  • Retrospective inspection of plant/assets for forensic purposes

Why should you use this standard? 

It specifies the general principles of magnetic particle testing of ferromagnetic materials, including surface preparation, magnetisation techniques, requirements and applications of the detection media, and recording and interpretation of the results.

What’s changed since the last update?

This standard supersedes BS EN ISO 9934-1:2015 because there is a minor revision to clause 13 on demagnetization.
